Stage 1 - Scholl Concepts S20
Scholl Concepts S20 is an amazing compound and polish all in one.

Stage 2 - CarPro Essence
CarPro Essence: Extreme Gloss
A unique finishing polish that combines a silica resin and an abrasive compound into one solution to becoming an innovative all in one product.
Essence by CarPro is an innovative finishing polish that has a variety of different roles. Essence contains a light abrasive in its formula, which allows it to remove medium-light defects on all different paintwork.
It also contains a silica resin which can fill minor marring, whilst also leaving a protective layer that drastically increases gloss and instils a self-cleaning effect onto the car.
This silica resin also helps improve the bond between CarPro Cquartz Coatings such as Reload, Cquartz and UK.
This means in no extra time and at no extra cost, you can add gloss, thickness, and durability as part of your final polishing step.

- Increase the speed slightly to generate more heat into the panel to maximise it's ability to bond to the paintwork
- Wipe off the residue and move onto the next section.
- You should wait approximately 1 hour before applying Cquartz coatings over Essence.
Do I have to use Eraser between Essence and CQuartz?
If you're using Essence by machine and you wait until the vehicle is finished then you can apply Reload or CQuartz after you finish the vehicle starting in the same direction you polished. If you want to be ultra safe you can still use Eraser but in our testings, to date, we have not seen any failure when we skipped Eraser.
If you're using Essence by hand then we recommend you use Eraser before coating. (Use isopropyl if you don't have Carpro eraser)
How long does CarPro Essence last?
We expect 1 year on its own but we recommend applying Reload or CQuartzUK over top for the much better hydrophobics and dirt resistance. This will provide 115+ Degree contact angle instead of 90 deg contact angle (not so good) with Essence alone.
